The long weekend was just what I needed. and I am ready to tackle the next four days at Not So New Job; it's already scheduled with back-to-back interviews, meetings, Zoom calls, and other crap, so it will be a busy one. I'll definitely be looking back on the weekend and pushing forward toward the next.
As an aside, I read a quote recently that said something along the lines of using your weekends to build the life you want, rather than using it to escape from the life you have, and that resonated with me. I don't enjoy my weekends nearly enough. Of course, my typical weekend consists of just one day in which I can make plans for anything relaxing or entertaining, thanks to the hardware store duties, so that creates a challenge.
Anyhoodle, back to what I did with the gift of an extra day this past weekend.
Saturday morning, I had planned to sleep in but was awakened by a text message from Hugh, who was out of town at a wrestling tournament; he was sharing a Ring camera video of Boomer dog in our mudroom attempting to eat the cat food overnight. Joke was on him, because the dish was empty and he got busted for nothing. Also, I could have done without the early wakeup call over said nothing.
Since there was no chance of falling back to sleep, I got up and got busy. If you recall, one of my goals for the new year is to purge and organize my house. I decided to tackle the fridge and kitchen pantry, doing a deep cleaning of both as I went along.
I'm pretty happy with the results. I'm also happy that I only discovered a handful of expired items.
